With Lil Wayne’s recent seizure scares putting the spotlight back on codeine use, Soulja Boy has pretty much endorsed the drug. Using Instagram to share a photo gallery of his daily life, the Atlanta rapper made sure to put his cough syrup addiction front and center.
“Make that work work make that sh-t flip,” he posted alongside a photo of a plastic bag containing three small bottles, next to one large bottle, of codeine. The image got more than 1,000 responses, may of which criticized the 22-year-old for promoting use of the very substance that led to the death of UGK’s, Pimp C.
“You are a dumb a– and you are going to end up dead behind this sh-t,” wrote one person. “We don’t give a sh-t [about] you. We trying to save Wayne!”
He allegedly got so much backlash that some of the comments were removed.
In looking further into his Instagram account, Hip-Hop Wired found that codeine is often the object of the Atlanta native’s affection.
This stuff is no joke, but maybe he doesn’t get it.
